INSURGENT, a thriller set against the Syrian conflict, will be released in 2019

Latest release

Book #2 in the Luc Fortesque adventure thriller series

The Vesuvius Group is destroyed. But not all secrets perished… and none as desirable as the Secret of Immortality. The key to the enigma was unwittingly killed in an Allied raid on a Nazi stronghold in 1945… officially.

"For fans of the fast-paced and modern tale with global reach that dabbles in history, this is a perfect storm."

About Douglas

Hey there! I'm Douglas Misquita. I write fast, visual literary entertainment. When you read my books, you'll be immersed in a blockbuster film... only, this one unfolds across the pages of a book.

I hand-wrote my first story on an 100-page, single-ruled book. I made my public debut in 2010 with Haunted, a thriller hammered out on the keys of a laptop with half-a-screen. (The other half was an iridescent artwork of cracked LCD.) Readers loved Haunted so much, I felt it would be nice to give them more of Kirk Ingram. Ergo, Diablo

Read the reviews, get yourself a copy... and buckle up! for edge-of-the-seat entertainment.

Oh, and while you're here, explore a bit. Read my 'backstory', get behind-the-scenes. I've even got stuff on writing and publishing, if you're interested. 

Take care!

Immortals among us

At the end 2014's The Apocalypse Trigger, Luc Fortesque laid waste to The Vesuvius Group. He could have easily sold the weapon's plans to the highest bidder and retired to a life of comfort. Instead, he's been hunting Wei Ling, the shadowy individual who played everybody for a fool, tortured Fortesque, and then experimented on him.

The clues lead Fortesque into the Democratic Republic of the Congo. There, amid the darkest depravity of human nature, Fortesque discovers a sliver of goodness within him. Wei Ling barely escapes, and Fortesque doggedly follows into Bogota...

The Colombian capital city stands on the brink of an imminent showdown between drug lord El Fantasma, and an equally mysterious nemesis, the vigilante, El Angel.

Arriving on scene, seeking answers to a disturbing family secret is Interpol agent, Sabina Wytchoff.

And an ageing Nazi hunter, who has stayed alive only to finish the task he was assigned in 1945... and decisively put an end to years of living a lie.
